Visual Studio App Centre

Continuous Everything – Build, Test, Deploy, Engage, Repeat.

Ship iOS, Android, Windows and macOS apps faster and with greater confidence by automating their lifecycles. Connect your repository and, within minutes, build in the cloud, test on thousands of real devices, distribute to beta testers and app stores, and monitor real-world usage with crash and analytics data. All in one place.

App Center + GitHub = ship your mobile projects faster

Automate the build-test-distribute process for your mobile projects in GitHub. Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) are one click away – just install App Center from the GitHub marketplace or through a notification in the GitHub UI.

Continuous integration in minutes

Build apps more frequently, faster

Take the pain out of building iOS, Android and Windows apps locally. By connecting to your GitHub, Bitbucket or Visual Studio Team Services repositories, you can build your apps automatically with every pull request or on demand – and avoid the extra work of managing build agents.

Continuous quality on real devices

Ship higher-quality apps with confidence

Automate UI tests on thousands of real-world devices and hundreds of configurations in the cloud, using popular frameworks such as Appium, Espresso and XCUITest. Test every possible UI interaction and diagnose bugs and performance problems every time you build, with detailed step-by-step tracking reports, screenshots and logs.

Continuous delivery that works

Deploy everywhere with ease

Distribute your app to beta testers and users on iOS, Android, Windows and macOS with every commit or on demand. Send different builds to different groups of testers and notify them via in-app updates. When ready, release to App Store, Google Play and Microsoft Intune.
